How do I enter?

Entry is via Eventbrite and payment can be made by credit or debit card or PayPal. Click here to enter. If you prefer to pay by cheque please contact us on info@muddymayhem.co.uk

Are my details correct?

It is essential that you check your confirmation email and make sure that your details are correct. This includes your contact details, emergency contact details, medical information etc. This is particularly important in the case of an emergency.

If you have entered as part of a team you need to make sure that individual entrant details are correct i.e. the team captain hasn’t just copied and pasted their details for everyone. Please check and amend if necessary. If the details are incorrect you will not be allowed to run.

Is there an age limit?

There is no upper limit as long as you are fit and healthy enough to run or walk the course but the minimum age is school year 1. The age ranges apply on run date i.e. so if your child is currently in Year 6 then come October he/she will be in Year 7.

How do you know if I have a medical condition?

You must be fit and healthy enough to participate in a run of this type. Any medical conditions must be detailed on your online registration so we have a record of them. Update them before you run if necessary. You must also write them, plus details of any medication, onto the back of your bib with a permanent marker.

Are my credit/debit card details safe?

Yes, this is why we chose to use Eventbrite for the registration process. They are a leading event registration company and have maximum security ratings.

Will I receive confirmation of my entry?

Yes, you will receive an automated reply once you have paid. This is your confirmation of entry. If for any reason your entry was incomplete or we have a query we will contact you via email or phone.

Can I run for charity?

Yes, we’d love it if you did, so will your charity. Simply set up a Just Giving page at www.justgiving.com and you choose the charity you would like to support.

Can I get a refund if I decide not to enter or if I am injured or can I give my place to a friend?

Unfortunately, we do not give refunds unless you can provide a doctor’s note. But you can give your place to a friend within 7 days of your cancellation notice, after that, your place will then be offered to the next person on the waiting list. Your replacement needs to complete the appropriate forms.

Will I receive my race number or any printed information via the post?
